Volunteer with us

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Ottawa Craft Beer Run! Our event is powered by volunteers and it would not be possible without all the amazing individuals working on our committee and on event day!

This is a 19+ event and a limited number of volunteers under 19 years of age will be accepted. Volunteers looking to receive high school volunteer hours will be assigned to help on route or at the water station.

Volunteer shifts are 4.5 – 7 hours.

Volunteer Perks:

  • Ottawa Beer Fest Pass
  • A volunteer certificate thanking you for your amazing help!
  • The chance to work with a really great team!
  • The chance to say “Hey! I know that run!! I actually volunteered at that Run and it was soooooo cool”

Those who register will be contacted by our volunteer coordinators.

Volunteer Orientation will take place a few days before the event. Details to follow.
